HELLO_and_QUESTION_re_NEW_ENDEAVOUR

I have attached an image of New Endeavour entering Newcastle Harbour.
(Nobbys is in the left background and a sixteen foot skiff out of Port Hunter Sailing Club is off her bow.)
My questions are: When? ... and For what purpose?
Regards
Greg Mattila

hi Robert I'm picking Newcastle NSW Oz which has a Hunter valley inland from the city.Also the background.
hello too to the poster. The ship is not like the Endeavour I remember.Maybe not a replica just a namesake. Any clues?

That ship is definitely not the square rigged replica of Cook 's Endeavoutpr that is normally berthed at the Maritime museum in Sydney .

I think actually Young Endeavour a bicentennial gift from the UK in 1988 and a youth sail training vessel

No, the "Young" endeavour was a two-masted ship. Here is the late John Briggs on the "New." https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=4700

Following_up

Thanks for the replies.

I didn't realise that the forum went international!

It is Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

I have since verified that the barquentine is the New Endeavour and the photo is pre-1987. (You can make out a two word name on the bow, and I have sourced other photos and history.)

Unfortunately, she met her demise when she could not be maintained and was burnt to the waterline at Ballina, NSW.

She was launched as Dana in 1919 having been built in Denmark.

She was brought to Australia by a syndicate in the mid-1960s having had a major refit in England.

If anyone could give a clue as to what year the photo was taken it would be most appreciated.

Regards
Greg Mattila
